November 10, 2010
Species: Tezpi Dancer
Location: Wild Horse Pass

The Tezpi Dancer, Argia tezpi, in Arizona is usually found at rocky shallow streams and rivers in the Southeast corner of the state (Paulson 2009). It has been found as far north as Kelvin Bridge, Pinal, along the Gila River approx. 65 miles E. of Phoenix, Maricopa.

On 10 November 2010 a mature male was observed along the Wild Horse Pass stream just south of Phoenix, apparently providing a first county record for the species. What is probably the same individual was found at the same location on 14 November 2010
